METALCON 2018 HOUSING UPDATE
Globetrotter Travel Management Services, Inc. is METALCON's ONLY OFFICIAL housing company. Do not be fooled by “imposter” housing companies that are soliciting your business to book a hotel room for METALCON. Hotel reservations will officially open on May 1. If you book your hotel room with any other travel company, your reservation is at risk of not being guaranteed. Please know that we do not share your company information with outside vendors.
STAY AHEAD OF INDUSTRY ISSUES AT METALCON
Annually, attendees and exhibitors from various industry segments and from around the world gather at METALCON to share information, exchange ideas and learn about issues affecting the industry. No other trade show offers more in the way of learning how to stay competitive in an ever changing industry. Ken Buchinger with MBCI comments, “I have seen this industry grow over the years. I have also seen it become much more complex from the standpoint of product offerings, product installation and the details on roofs, so installers need good information and training. The Metal Construction Association (MCA) and METALCON provide quite a few training programs to help contractors, both with installation and how to run their businesses.”
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A METAL ROOFING CHAMPION?
Ten teams of two participants each are needed for this year’s MCA Metal Roofing competition. Teams should be from the same company and attend all 3 days of the show. There will be five challenges each on Wednesday and Thursday, October 10 and 11. The team that scores the highest collective points each day will be required to return on Friday October 12 for a run-off competition. The winning team will be recognized as the 2018 MCA METALCON Metal Roofing National Champion and receive a Grand Cash Prize of $2,000! Pre-register your team today!
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA - A CITY ON THE RISE

The city’s roots may have begun in the financial services industry, but Charlotte has seen major growth in the healthcare, information technology, and advanced manufacturing business sectors over the past decade. Its workforce has grown by 23% since 2010! Charlotte boasts the 6th busiest airport in the world offering 700 daily nonstop flights to over 150 domestic and international cities. Six Fortune 500 companies call Charlotte home and it was ranked "2nd Highest Growth in Number of Small Businesses" in 2016.
